Watermarks: Water and the Human Experience is a collection of art and artifacts depicting the ways communities use water in their daily lives. It represents how humans have used water as a means of transportation and adapted to the excess or absence of it. It even explores the many myths around the world about water and all the spiritual context water has.
Museum studies students in the Exhibition Design and Development class spent the semester creating the exhibit. Splitting up into curatorial teams, groups worked on individual cases, as well as on teams for registration, content development, and design. Visit the Shaw Galley, located on the second floor of the Logan Museum of Anthropology, to learn how people’s lives around the world shape and are shaped by water in Watermarks: Water and the Human Experience runs through June 2016.
